Selecting the right method for measuring high-power fiber lasers — whether with a camera, a scanning-slit system, or Rayleigh scattering — requires knowledge of the benefits and constraints of each.

KEVIN KIRKHAM, OPHIR

Fiber lasers are used in ever-increasing numbers across a range of applications. In the 2- to 20-kW-power output range, laser applications are growing in materials processing and in finesse applications such as 3D micromilling, microcutting, blind-hole machining, and additive manufacturing. According to Hexa Research, “High-power cutting and welding is a leading application in the [fiber laser] market. This could be attributed to increasing use of the product in tube cutting, flat sheet cutting, 3D cutting, car body scanner welding, power train welding, and tube welding1.” ...Read full article
